View over Würzburg from Marienberg Fortress View over Würzburg from Marienberg Fortress Last Thursday was another bank holiday – Corpus Christi. It’s the last one until Reunification Day in October. I spent the day in Würzburg. I had never been there before but when I passed it with the ICE last year, I immediately thought that I should visit it some day.

Würzburg is indeed a beautiful town. Lots of small streets, old buildings and all that next to the Main and surrounded by vineyards. The sight of Würzburg is Marienberg Fortress of course. It’s a quite exhausting walk if you go there on foot but once you reached it, you are treated with a beautiful and stunning view over the town. On my way back to the station, I ate my first ice cream of this season. 1,20€ per scoop! Seriously?! I mean be honest: in the end, none of you guys really produces handcrafted ice cream anymore. You all use ready-made ingredients. The ice was good anyways. I can really recommend a trip to Würzburg if you have day off. You are certainly done in one day so it’s nothing for a longer trip. Still, it’s worth a visit. 🙂
